Explanation and Communication by the doc was really great.********* ****** **** *** the doctor explained the medicines very nicely.
I sprained my ankle during badminton in UK. After that I started getting numbness in my leg. I could not stand or walk for more than 10 minutes. I was in continous pain. I have consulted many doctors in UK, undergone physio theraphy, acupuncture. But nothing helped. I have specially visited India get my whole body check up. I have consulted couple of doctors there too. Accidently I met Dr. Amit in Gurudwara during his service there.He is the one who gave me hope and diagnosed correct MRI and found the root cause of my pain. I am very greatful to him. Following his advice and physio theraphy sessions I am feeling much better in long long time. I strongly recommend Dr. Amit for any ortho/spine related issues. Thank you!
I had visited Dr. Amit with broken shoulder and limited movement in my right hand. Before visiting him , I was treated by so called best doctors and facilities in Australia and had spent good amount of money on the treatment. But the situation was not improving and had limited movement around 15-20 % when I visited him. Within 10 days I got almost all my movement back. I am much better now. The most amazing things about the whole treatment , he never asked me to go for any Xray , CTScan or MRI. I find him very honest , sincere , no rush attitude, friendly and very helpful. He helped me with my neck problem too. He seems to be very well read and all round abilities to guide the patient for right treatment. Highly recommended.
My mother visited Dr. Agarwal for pain and sourness in her heel. First thing very appreciable and professional about Dr. Agarwal was that he called me much before the appointment time and informed me that he is going to be half an hour late as he is stuck in some medical emergency case and he asked me if that's ok. And when we reached clinic there were already few patients in queue before us but the receptionist informed him about our situation and we were let in earlier than them. So, Dr. Agarwal respects his patient's time which is not the case with many doctors. His check up was also good and he explained the issue also in detail. And another great thing about him is that when I faced cunfusion about his prescribed medicine then I called him which he didn't receive. But just after sometime I got a call back from him and he explained about the medicine very patiently. Very professional and helpful he is. Thank you sir.
Q: Who is an Orthopaedist?
A: An orthopaedist is a medical doctor who specializes in diagnosis and treatment of disorders related to the skeletal system. An orthopaedic doctor attends to any disorder or condition or injury pertaining to the bones, muscles, joints, and ligaments associated with the skeletal system. These medical professionals treat conditions like arthritis, back pain, sports injuries, and leg and foot pain
Q: What is the difference between an Orthopaedist and an Orthopaedic surgeon?
A: Orthopaedists are sometimes mistakenly referred to as orthopaedic surgeons. An orthopaedist deals with conditions related to the musculoskeletal system. He provides pre-surgical consultation and post-surgical follow up. An orthopaedic surgeon provides same care as orthopaedist, but performs surgery as well. He performs surgery to cure back pain, ruptured discs, bone tumours, carpal tunnel, arthritis and other injuries.
Q: Does an Orthopaedist treat foot and ankle related problems?
A: Yes, an orthopaedist deals with musculoskeletal problems within the body. Problems related to foot and ankle fall under this category. Common foot problems like bunions, ankle sprains, arthritis, and sports injury are treated by an orthopaedist. Diagnosis of foot and ankle related problems are done through imaging tests. The mode of treatment depends on the severity of the problem.
Q: Does one need a doctor referral to see an Orthopaedist?
A: One can consult an orthopaedist by booking an appointment. Consultation with the orthopaedist is conducted in his/her clinic or at a healthcare centre. In some cases, patients go to a general physician for any condition or disorder related to the musculoskeletal system. Once preliminary investigation is done, the general physician may refer the patient to an orthopaedist for further examination.
Q: Does an Orthopaedist treat sport injuries?
A: Sport injuries are mostly related to the musculoskeletal system. Injuries like ligament tear, sprains, fractures, muscle pull, or bruises are commonly encountered in sports. An orthopaedist is the right medical doctor to consult for sport injuries. After physical examination, the orthopaedist may ask for imaging tests for confirming the extent of damage and then treat accordingly.
